Arcade Action-Adventure Dungeon Crawler Receives Strong Early Reviews, Studio Extends Fan Art Contest by 10 Days

          CANTON, Mass. (December 19, 2012) – Creat Studios, premier digital download publisher and developer of online, console and mobile games, announced today’s North American release of PlayStation®Network action-adventure game Labyrinth Legends.  The new title is already receiving strong early reviews for tight gameplay, vivid graphics, attention to lighting and other visual effects, challenging puzzles, intuitive controls and a high level of fun!

          Labyrinth Legends is a quirky, addictive arcade action-adventure dungeon crawler, featuring tricky puzzles and concealed traps in catacombs and ancient tombs of lost civilizations. Players battle foreboding mummies, zombies, ghouls and other monsters seeking to defend their turf.  Three different local multiplayer modes for up to four players let them battle to as the greatest treasure hunter while braving mysterious tunnels, mystical crypts and maniacal creatures. Labyrinth Legends includes PlayStation® Trophy support, costs $9.99 to purchase and is rated “T” for Teen.

          “Our entire team at Creat Studios has been eager for the upcoming release of Labyrinth Legends, mainly to see and hear player and press feedback” said Scott Hyman, VP of Publishing of Creat Studios Inc. “Labyrinth Legends promises to deliver a high level of fun, playable content for PlayStation®Network game players, plus a few surprises along the way.  We are truly excited about offering this new game to our fans!”

          Alex Carroll, online games journalist for gamer news site The Sixth Axis, offers, “Labyrinth Legends is immediately likable and has a steady progression curve that rewards the player with new items continuously. If you like dungeon crawlers chopped up into bite-sized pieces this may well be right up your street – it’s got that typical Creat polish to it, and nice presentation often speaks volumes.”  You can read Alex’s full review online:

          Creat Studios is extending the deadline for their debut fan art contest supporting the current release of Labyrinth Legends.  Fans of Creat Studios’ PlayStation®Network releases are invited to create original art based on any of the studio’s line-up of thirteen games. Contest winners can win all thirteen PlayStation®Network game titles from Creat Studios, including Labyrinth Legends. Winning art will be featured on the Creat Studios web site, blog and Facebook page following the contest. New contest deadline is Friday, December 28, 2012.  Winners will be announced on Thursday, January 3, 2012. Complete contest details are available at
